So we have a government by the people and for the people. Is that government hiding a secret? Is that government an entity of it's own? The first amendment allows me the freedom of speech, the freedom to ask why the Social Security Administration to need bullets.
Maybe Joseph Watson was mistaken.

The purchase is old news. If you Goggle the purchase you will find other agencies doing the same. What you will not find is any explanation of why and no out cry from our representatives. No one has come up with any reasonable explanation. Most of this started in 2012. I don't understand why there is not greater concern.

I read an heard the response. Hollow points on the firing range? How about Cadillac on the police training tracks?

Big question that has been raised and not answered as why hollow points. It is not realistic that you would use those on a firing range. No sense to that and no explanation.

Because they are much more efficacious in achieving their intended purpose than nerf bullets, you silly ass.

Moroever,they are much less likely to "overpenetrate" and kill not only the savage that needed killing but the innocent civilian standing behind the scum.

You train with what you actually carry in your weapon.

Generally speaking, you don't train with what you carry. Most folks train with cheap ammo and carry high dollar ammo. Yes, you want to test the ammo you are going to carry just in case but you don't shoot high dollar brass everytime you go to the range.

At today's prices you don't even want to waste bulk ammo...

They are not buying hollow point to practice with. They are buying it to kill citizens with. Who else do you think they plan on using it against? If any foriegn nation invades us the military would come in and they have all the ammo they need.

Personally, I think they feel threatened. They have seen the real numbers. They know that people are starting to come together to push back against thier tyranny. They know that the dollar is imploding on itself and that is the only thing keeping us enslaved.

Educate yourselves. This is a big red flag.

Wrong. What you train with actually is ball ammo.

I believe the Geneva Convention does not allow Hollow points in warfare. Another word our military uses ball ammo.

Can't find the link anymore but I had read an article that said that DHS had purchased over a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition.

Anyone remember the 2008 speech when Obama said he wanted a federal police force greater that our military. I haven't been able to find that speech either.
